Danny Wuerffel. Derrick Thomas. Tommie Frazier. Brian Bosworth. Those are just a few of the names that haven’t been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
Putting my Husker Bias aside, Tommie’s annual snub seems the most glaring to me when you have the likes of Major Harris already in the Hall. Not to mention he is perhaps the most memorable and dominant figure during Nebraska’s Dynasty of the mid to late 90’s.
The folks over at Everyday Should Be Saturday had their own conspiracy theory of why Touchdown Tommie is still not in the Hall:
I’m honestly thinking Tommie will gain 5 mic status or some sort of Source Award before he get’s into the Hall. Check out Tommie’s B-Rabbit from before the 1996 Fiesta Bowl.
